Check out progress on the Tacoma Dome station design concepts

 Representative map of Tacoma Dome routes and station alternatives. All routes being considered are elevated. All four of the station alternatives are located adjacent to Freighthouse Square. The preferred route alternative travels along E 25th St and ends on E D St.  Click map to view a full-size PDF map.

Key station design concept components of the Tacoma Dome station include:

  • Bus transfer area: 11 bus stops, organized in six different concepts for a new or reconfigured bus facility at Tacoma Dome station
  • Bus layover area: Options for layover areas to accommodate buses terminating their routes at this station
  • Pedestrian overcrossing between different transit modes: Multiple options for overcrossing location based on station location, generally over the Sounder tracks or East G Street
  • Bicycle storage: Racks and lockers located next to or under the station platform
  • Pick-up/drop-off spaces: Short-term parking areas located near the station platform

The following station design concepts show how people may get to the station by bicycle (in green), as a pedestrian (in blue) and by bus (in red). Check out the diagrams, then share your comments on how people will come and go from the station as well as the station design concepts themselves.

Accessing Tacoma Dome station via non-motorized modes (walking, rolling and bicycling)

To provide access for all future riders, we want to make sure there are safe and convenient walking, rolling and cycling routes between the Tacoma Dome station and neighborhoods, businesses and community gathering places.

  • The map and table show potential non-motorized access improvements for consideration and evaluation.
  • Some non-motorized access improvements combine pedestrian and bicycle improvements, while others are only one or the other.

Whether you walk, bike or roll to your Link station, we will evaluate these non-motorized access projects with your convenience and safety in mind. Explore the map, leave comments and offer new ideas.

We are considering the following non-motorized access improvement projects for the Tacoma Dome station. Sound Transit’s funding resources to implement these projects is limited, so the evaluation process will help us prioritize projects for each station area. Comment on as many or as few as you prefer.
